New Stuff, lol

New stuff. Brakes and E-cutout valves. Still have to wait for the side skirts, uhg, still have to wait for the bumper, uhg, still have to wait for the bumperettes, uhg, and I still have to wait for the diffusers to be re-re-painted. More posts when I get the stuff.

New LEDs. Look awesome. Still working on the LCD display for the climate controll. The LEDs are working, just dim for some reason. I will post when I get it fixed.

Put the bumperettes and the diffusers on. Horrible pictures but heres a general idea. I will take more later. My bumper won't be done untill Monday, sadly I will be back at college Sunday so I will have to wait untill I come home again to put it on. Sideskirts will be shipped the 16th so I estimate they will be painted by February .

Thumbs up Nice rims

Jonathan, nice rims, they are a relief from the norm. Did you use chromed or polished wheel bolts. I think they really finish off the wheels. keep us posted.

When it turns a little messier I will have my bumperettes off to be color matched but I suppose I could drive it with them off for a short period of time like you are doing. Party on.

Thanks, They are chrome. I just went to a tire place and said order me some wheel bolts 45mm and 52mm. I paid $70 for for all 20. I was suprised when they came and were chrome, but it looks a million times better than the stock bolts I had on. Seriously, I didnt even take a pic with them on it was so bad.

Look at the last however many pictures. I got my bumper today and there are some pics of my diffusers and bumperettes. Enjoy! (And don't steal! You know who you are, taking advantage of James like that... Shame shame.)

Hey Bogg,

Love the pics - keep 'em comin'. Can't wait to see the bumper and skirts all in one package.

I got your back if the little boys playing big business copy your pics!

Its on. All I have to do is get my sideskirts and get them painted. They should ship tomorrow but we will see about that. The cost of painting the bumper, bumperettes, and diffusers was $420. Most of that was due to the bumper being in such bad condition and them having to hand strip it and fill in everything. Thanks for all the feedback guys

Well, after monthes of waiting, I got the sideskirts. But they are the wrong ones. So I asked for a refund and Im just gonna save up a little more money and buy OEM ones. Just a bunch of crap. And the saga continues...

What do you guys think of these skirts http://www.porscheshop.co.uk/acatalog/porsche_boxster_body_styling.html
The side sills evo ones. Im unsure whether they will look awesome, or totaly lame. They look like the gemballa ones, but smaller... throw out some other suggestions.

I think those would look funny from the rear, as much as they bulge out. And are the vents funtional? If it's non-functional, then I instantly say nay. Also, I'm a fan of the "subtle" look, and these don't seem all that discrete. To get the full effect of these skirts, I think it'd be nice to see a full car side shot.

UPDATE:

New headlights in. Look good. Still need to buy fancy bulbs and melt the orange box out of the headlight.
Sideskirts, the guy was only gonna offer me an 85% refund so I said fine, send me the sideskirts. I havent gotten them yet.

I am CJs bottled up emotion of evny & jealousy. They look really nice, Personally i would leave in the yellow plastic cause it gives it some style accent or atleast if you decide to cut it out, leave in a orange bulb so theres still a hit of accent when you look at the front end of the car. Dont wanna go too uniform with a solid plain look on the frontend.

Here are some pics with it waxed. Side skirts are being painted tomorrow or have already been painted and I will put them on this weekend. I hate how it looks like there is a rip in time and space in my driver door, lol. There really isnt anything messed up with it.

Just leave the amber in the headlights. Too much can go wrong for the cost of removing a small bit of orange. To be honest the car kicks a55 as is,I wouldn't touch after you add the side skirts.

Damn Bogg - lights look just as hot as I thought they would...! Were they in good shape?

I'm kinda with DJ - think the 550's would be smokin' on your ride!
